DH is up & walking

Oh my prayers have so been answered, he's walking full time - officially from the doctor on Friday. Driving - alas no & believe me he's finding it just as trying as I am, he doesn't like being a passenger...... I am getting used to being told which lane to drive in, which petrol pump to go to & where I should park...... I have patience & generally am easy going . Lets just say the petrol pump guidance didn't go down that well LOL infact I think my mouth opened before my brain was in gear.
This morning we went to a church 'English ' breakfast raising funds for our local old age home, it was fun & yummy & was the start to Alan's first full morning out. Then it was off to the shopping center to grab some yummy food for our trip to Joburg tomorrow, then a stop at our favourite coffee shop for a superb capuchinno & terrible piece of chocolate cake. We shared a piece thankfully because it was not eaten only to find out that the ownership has changed quite sad really. Anyway we won't be stopping in there again. Needless to say he's back with his feet up & has to decide what sport to watch or record or just miss out on !!!
We are off to joburg tomorrow and I am his driver & chief do whatever, but he only has two meetings, a consignment to check up on & collect & its back home again. I am anxious about the Joburg traffic but sooo looking forward to seeing the aloes that are in full bloom on our way.

I am sure you will do just fine in the traffic. So glad to hear that he is healing and getting better. Enjoy pampering him while you can.

Just returned from Port Elizabeth, which had the most magnificent aloes on route a lot of the way. So glad Alan is back on his feet & by now must be shimmying around all over the place...
